Hp4 brake pads?

Does the HP4 take the same brake pads as the 2012 BMW ? Not talking about quality but more about size are they interchangeable ,like when I'm ready to replace brake pads for racing like vesrah or ebc extreme pro do I need to get them for hp4 or I can get them for BMW s1000rr and they fit the same?

2009-2011 for sure not.
I think the 2012 S1000RR front.. utilizes a pair of two-piece cast Brembo radial-mount calipers. The HP4 is a Dual Brembo Monobloc four-piston calipers.
I am almost positive it will NOT be the same.
As far as the rear brakes? There has been no changes.

no they are different, the hp4 has a pinless caliper, only a spring clip holds the pads and the pads on the hp4 are one piece where the std s1000 are 2 piece

totally different. But pads for the M4 monoblocs are easy to get, since Ducati uses the same caliper on so many of their models.

I went with Galfer G1375s and am happy with them

Has anyone upgraded their HP4 pads? What are you running? Part numbers would be helpful too.

I'm thinking about trying the Carbone Lorraine XBK5s. Riding style is 75% track, 25% street.

Talking about brake difference between the S1000RR and the HP4.

I have taken a friend's 1000RR for a ride the other day and found the brakes to have a LOT more bite than my HP4.
Now I am not saying that in the end they stop the bike shorter, but with less pressure on the lever, they feel a lot stronger.

Can anybody confirm if that is indeed the case?? Just curious...

S1000RR brakes are good. HP4 are better. Probably just lever feel and setup differences. Draw a line on the road and emergency brake both..you will feel and see the difference.

So no one has upgraded their HP4 pads? Guess I'll be the first.
